and i don't believe the votes are there in the united states senate or the house to pass anything like the carbon tax, or the democrats are talking an energy tax, like a gasoline tax, kim is right. if they're going to do this, through the regulatory angle and outlaw in that way. >> paul: but then, james, why mention it so prominently, or was this sort after bait and switch for the environmentalists and mention it and in policy terms don't. >> there may be some bait and switch, but this is key. if he doesn't need to get anything through the congress, like the potomac swatch-- >> kim strassel. >> so well. they think that they have a court decision a few years empowers them to regulate carbon. they think they're off to the races here and this suggests to me that maybe the play is, with all of the business community expecting an approval of the keystone pipeline, the president might approve the pipeline, but then really ratchet down on the use of the oil going through that pipeline and i think he might be able to say to environmentalists. >> paul: how would they do that, they won't build t
, to the united states senate. a longtime member of the senate club. he will be introduced by secretary of state hillary clinton. senator john mccain will also play a role. interesting because mccain has a very similar resume to john kerry but a very different political philosophy. last night with greta van sus traivan susteren he talked about serrie as secretary of indicate. >> reporter: john and i don't agree on a lot of issues but we have a relationship which was forged years ago, and so i have confidence that he will carry out the president's agenda and serve the president. >> reporter: mccain said he would not have selected john kerry to be secretary of state because they obviously have a very different philosophy. he does expect that kerry will be effective in carrying out obama's philosophy. martha: when they make these nominees they know they have some that will be easy, some are more heavy lifting. where does this one fall. >> reporter: john kerry is the least controversial of the ones coming up right now. 50% of independents would and most of the democrats would. if you were senator wo
as united states senator in the interim until that special election. uma: his appointment signals the start of the special election race. so far the only announced candidate is massachusetts congressmanned marquis. steven lynch and former republican seven scott brown have been mentioned as pass candidates. the seat was left vacant by senator kerry's confirmation as the next secretary of state. jon: right now toyota is dealing with another major car recall. rick is live at the breaking news desk with this information. >> reporter: in this involves bad air bags and windshield wipers. toyota is recalling more and million vehicles. the corolla, and the corolla matrix sold in 2003 and 2004. they have air bags that could deploy inadvertently. the bad wipers are on the ix models sold between 2006 and 2012, apparently the wipers don't work in heavy snow. toyota has reclaimed its crown out selling number two gm but recalls have been a problem for the japanese company over the last several years hurting the bottom line and these latest recalls will only add to those problems. toyota says that owners
in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she'd make a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, reporter michael hastings just wrote it. president obama called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to, quote/unquote, avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father and said that we were going to bring this guy who created this video to justice. i mean, what was that about? they're just trying to continue to perpetuate this false narrative. this wasn't caused by the fact that al qaeda was on the rise. this was caused by something that had nothing to do with this administration. they're misleading the american public. >> thank you. >>> still to come, we're facing some of the coldest temperatures in years in this country. some scientists say it's due to global warmin
blitzer begins right now. >> don, thanks very much. happening now, the united states senator talks about the traumatic day she tried to find a pulse by putting her finger into the bullet hole of a colleague who had just been shot. now she wants to ban 158 kinds of assault weapons. dispute all the iphones, the tablets, ipods and a whole lot more there are out there, perhaps in your hands right now, apple's day as a wall street darling potentially, potentially could be over. wait until you hear how the stock got clobbered today and why. >>> and football star manti te'o opens up about the hoax that fooled him and the rest of the country. it's the interview that so many people have been waiting for. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with a new effort to ban 158 specific assault-style weapons and prohibit other guns from using magazines containing more than ten rounds of ammunition. those are just two of the provisions of a bill put forward today by united states senator whose own hands were bloodied by one of the most notorious shootings in california history. da
the united states senate. >> insane city. his book about the senate. >> the what did you learn today? >> i learned today that my brother-in-law tom, toughest guy i know going through a tough time right now. love you tommy. >> what kind of tough time? >> he got his first day of chemoyesterday. here's to you, buddy. >> that leads me to tell you what i've learned today is what you should learn each day. be grateful for your health. if you've got
appreciate it united states senate will be needing new name tags. three senators calling it quits giving the g.o.p. an opportunity to pick up some seats and maybe the majority. our political panel weighs in on their chances. >> and hillary clinton getting set to leave as secretary of state. now some of her supporters, they want her work recognized with a very special honor. we will tell what you it is and how they are going about it. >> and one state lawmaker taking no chances with the future of our currency laying out a plan if the federal reserve has a meltdown. does that make sense or is it it just wasted taxpayer dollars? red lobster's 30 shrimp. wow, that's a lot of shrimp. [ male announcer ] it's red lobster's 30 shrimp! for $11.99 pair any two shrimp selections on one plate! like mango jalapeƑo shrimp and parmesan crunch shrimp. just $11.99. offer ends soon! i'm ryon stewart, and i sea food diffently. to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits, but there's a growing pain in his lower back. as lin grow longer, his p
you're seeing in the senate and house right now. >> senator daschle, if you parachuted into the united states senate today, newly elected senator, would you recognize the place from the places you group in politically? >> i think you would. i think that obviously the institution itself is still very much intact. we had a discussion of our rules in the last couple of weeks. i think you're going to see the institution continue to evolve. but the basic components are still there, principles are still there. the founding fathers came up with a unique way for everyone to have a role, small states and large states and to contribute. those principles are still there. i'm act which encouraged. howard is right, demographics are changing politics and as they change on immigration, they will change on climate and a number of areas i think the american people will demand senators and congressman find common ground a lot more effectively. we're beginning to see that in the first three weeks of this session. >> let me say also senator and governor dean, the demographics will also change the debt deb
of openly-gay members of congress and openly-gay united states senator and a president who stands up for lgbt rights. [applause] as democrats, our party will proudly continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our lgbt brothers and sisters as we continue this fight. as democrats we are proud that our party truly reflects the diversity of america. we should also be proud that our party made a commitment to insure that our diverse orty is reflected in our day-to-day o operations. by the way, it is no coincidence that this cycle we hired -- [inaudible] and exceeded our one-third diversity spend goal at the democratic national convention. and we have a president who leads the way. i could not have been more proud of our president more yesterday, particularly when he so eloquently reminded us that as americans our journey is not complete until it's complete for everyone. remember when he said our journey is not complete until our wyoming withs, our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their effort, our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like
of leadership i intend to provide as president of the united states. >> and, of course -- >> senator clinton, that's a clear swipe at you. >> really? >> back then, it was a very different relationship in the midst of an already bitter rivalry. >> while i was working on those streets, you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. >> you were practicing law and representing your contributor in his slum landlord business in inner city chicago. >> but that relationship quickly changed. >> i endorse him and throw my full support behind him. >> just as hillary clinton showed her support for president obama, obama showed his faith in clinton. >> i have no doubt that hillary clinton is the right person to lead our state department and to work with me in tackling this ambitious foreign policy agenda. >> what was hillary clinton's initial reaction when you told her, look, they're actually considering you as a possibility for secretary of state? >> she didn't believe it. >> reporter: he is one of clinton's closest aides. >> i e-mailed her, i think it was the friday after election day aft
senate, and the united states people in a national discussion of how much taxes, how much spending, how much debt we're going to be able to have and get by and do. and so that is really, really critical, and that process has been gone for four years. we are stumbling from crisis to crisis, secret meeting after secret meeting and secret group after secret group, it has not worked. we ned a public discussion. then we layout how much we're going to spend and how much we are going to tax. bill: doesn't the law say that you have to have a budget? >> bill, it explicitly in the united states code passed in 1974 the senate and the house should pass a budget by april 15th. it should be in the committee marked up by april 1st. those have not been done. and it's just been a direct violation of law. and i've been as you know a big critic of that. it's unthinkable. bill: from new york i've heard you loud and clear. one more think quickly, jack lew treasury secretary. you have said strong words against him. why is he unfit for that job. >> first he went before the public as 2011 as budget director an
the senate will decide when it is in recess, not the president of the united states. so if senators go home at 5:00 at night and come back at 7:00 the next morning, that's not recess. if they go home for thanksgiving, that's not recess. it's only when they shut down and stop their business like at christmastime. that's the recess. >>brian: the best example during the bush years was ambassador bolton. wasn't going to get passed, the senate goes on recess, the senate puts him forward, he goes on for two years. >> as much as we like and respect john bolton his nomination would have been invalid. the vacancy says the nomination must arise during the recess and filled during the recess. >>brian: how outrageous is it, we go by the rulings to have the white house ignore the rulings? why don't we start ignoring the white house? >> that is a very serious issue. the national labor relations board does not have a valid number of people on it. therefore, everything they have done with these two people on it, everything they continue to do is invalid and the white house is doing nothing about it. >>bria
, and i'm sure senator menendez understands as senator schumer and durbin do that my state, most of the drugs now coming across the mexican border into the united states comes through across the arizona/sonora border, so border enforcement is very important. we have made progress on border enforcement. there's been significant improvements but still have a ways to go, but i'm confident, guardedly optimistic, that this time we can get it done. >> citizenship is obviously the most controversial aspect for some of your republican colleagues, and you've gone back and forth. in 2005 you were for it. by 2010 you wanted border security first and, quote, certainly no amnesty, so you're solidly behind a pathway to citizenship. how do you convince some of those republicans who are not behind it? >> well, first of all, i've always been for border security. i mean, there are citizens in my state who do not live in a secure environment. we live in a pretty secure environment here, certainly in the senate, we've got guards and there's people every night in the part -- the southern part of my s
